    Anyone ever get a fuel line leak? I was riding today and noticed my leg was cold and felt wet and I look down only to see my fuel line about to pop off the gas tank. I closed the valve quick and pushed it all the way back up. It keeps getting loose now and about to come off so I used some duct tape to keep it on. What should I do to keep it on for sure?

    best thing to do is to get some real fuel line from an auto parts store and some small hose clamps. it's only a coupla bucks.

    I support the hose clamps and new hose. That clear hose they provide does not last long at all.

    Do you think home depot would sell the new fuel line? Maybe auto zone?

    I would try AZ for the hose and clamps before HD When you go take the hose you have now so you can get the right size.

    Went to the local hardware shop and got some clear tubing. Same size and I also got a hose clamp. Gonna hook it all up and use the hose clamp to make sure its tight.

    Before you put on the newparts make sure that the little nipple on the carb. is tight on the gasket Mine was a little loose and I just snugged it down. Of course I found out about that after I replaced everything. lol
